TED.com is a platform for watching, sharing, discussing and translating TED Talks — as well as learning more about TED's many projects and initiatives. Take some time to explore the site and see how TED.com brings Ideas Worth Spreading to the wider world.
The heart and soul of TED.com is our library of TED Talks. With a new talk posted every weekday, visitors can watch, rate, comment on and share every talk. You’ll also find ways to learn more about the speaker and their ideas -- watching the talk can be just the beginning.
Our Playlists let you watch curated collections of TED Talks, offering two uninterrupted hours of exploration on a single, compelling topic. Choose from a range of popular TED themes or from talks guest selected by some famous TED fans.
Programs and initiatives
To make the talks accessible beyond our English-speaking audience, TED’s Open Translation Project coordinates a network of over 16,000 volunteer translators. Thanks to OTP, subtitles and interactive transcripts are available for almost every talk, with many in over 100 languages.
And of course, TED.com is the place to look for information about our new and ongoing initiatives. We hope you’ll find TED.com an invaluable resource for questions like, “Are there any upcoming local TEDx events in my area?”, “How do I apply to be a TED Fellow?”, "Who was this year's TED Prize winner?" and more.
You can also find great written content on the TED Blog and the TED Ideas Blog. The TED Blog follows the goings-on of the people who make TED what it is -- from speakers to translators to TEDx organizers -- and Ideas digs deeper into the subjects TED is passionate about, some of the biggest questions of our time.
